Oh, you did the decoupage very well, and that indicates your love for art! Instead of paints, you used gift wrappers and wallpapers to give your cabinet a new look! But be wary of liquids that may pe put above the cabinet. That is great artistry, indeed!


I'll never look at a filing cabinet the same way again!!


Hi Melony! I did a smaller version of your cabinet over my break - because of the inspiration I found by your fabulous cabinet! Please stop by and see it! Hugs, Patti


Just found your blog and I am in LOVE with that filing cabinet! What a clever idea to cover it!! So darn cute!!!


Oh, man, that is so totally cool! What a fabulous idea; and so much hard work, too! I never knew you could decoupage fabric.


Oh it is patchwork perfect! Thanks for linking up to Beyond the Picket Fence.

Oh my goodness, it looks spectacular, and I never would have thought to decoupage it! Paint would have been fine, but this is magnificent. It's not good to be jealous, but I really really am!
Happy REDnesday!


I was going along with each step, but certainly did not expect the outcome. You are a very talented and creative lady. It is truly unique and probably one of a kind. Great job.


Very, very darling! You are a clever chickie :)



What a fun redo!

Happy Rednesday,


You did great!! Really!! But you already knew that. Good for you.


Fantastic job~! I love the colors and that you rescued this cool piece.

OMGOSH!! I LOVE IT!!! My husband picked up an old metal architects cabinet. I love the cabinet, but it is metal and grey...I didn't know what to do...till now...Your cabinet looks fantastic...I want to do this to mine.


Awesome! I have two small black file cabinets that were begging me for a makeover tonight when I finished painting my office. Can I ask, how much mod podge did that take?? Do you need to topcoat it with something after it is done? Thanks for sharing, I love it!
